Wymeswold Village Project Fund - Community Grant Awards 2012


The Wymeswold Village Project Fund (the organising committee behind the annual Duck Races) made grants available to local clubs, associations, societies, community projects and charities. These grants were a result of the Wymeswold Village Duck races and the profits realised on the betting races, BBQ and games.

Applications from four village-based organisations were received by the closing date of 30th September and the Awards Panel was able to distribute a total of £716.17 in grants as follows:

  • Wymeswold Memorial Hall
    New stage blocks
  • Wymeswold Baby & Toddler Group
    Support running of workshops and activities
  • 1st Wolds Rainbow Guides
    New storage cupboard for equipment
  • Wymeswold Playgroup
    New dolls house and furniture

The Awards Panel felt that all the above projects met the conditions of the award scheme and were pleased to help out these village organisations with their respective projects.

Next year’s Duck Races will be held on Sunday 12th May 2013 and as usual village groups are invited to get involved.
